At Laurel Area Faith in Action, we are "Changing lives, two at a time". The rewards are as great for the Volunteers giving as they are for the Recipients receiving the services.
We are all called to reach out and help our neighbor. Knowing who to help and how to help is sometimes a greater challenge than helping, though. The LAIVC program makes it easy for all to help. Our youngest volunteers are barely a year old (part of our "Moms" team), many are adolescents and teens, several are aged 80+ and all ages in between.
We provide full training and ask volunteers to commit just two hours per week. We offer great flexibility --- you choose what you want to do and when you can do it.
Volunteers can join the program individually, or you may choose to join one of our teams. Working with a team, volunteers may go on assignments together and can rely on their teammates for backup when they are ill or out of town.
“ Faith in Action has been such a blessing to me, in my quest for something meaningful to do with these “autumnal” years of life.”
“I love this giving and taking. Everybody gets what they need that way.”
